Sprint 8830 on TMobil
has anyone been able to use their Sprint 8830 successfully with a TMobil sim card and how

It's not possible.
The 8830 will not function on a GSM carrier within the united states.
The device does not support the frequencies used by T-Mobile US.

Thank you penguin3107 for the info.

For future reference, the only devices that can be mixed and matched with carriers are att and tmo. And any of their other companier (I.e. Rogers, tmo Germany, etc.). Only phones that take SIM cards. Cdma carriers cannot be "unlocked" like gsm phones can

The 8830 works fine with 900/1800.

However, North America uses 850/1900, so it is not usable on T-Mobile US, which was the original question.
